Possilpark and Parkhouse railway station serves the Possilpark and Parkhouse areas of Glasgow, Scotland. It is located on the Maryhill Line, 3 miles (5 km) north of Glasgow Queen Street. Services are provided by Abellio ScotRail on behalf of Strathclyde Partnership for Transport.
The station was one of five built for Maryhill Line project, which was supported by what was then the Strathclyde Passenger Transport Executive and completed by British Rail in December 1993. The route on which the station stands is considerably older though, being opened by the Glasgow, Dumbarton and Helensburgh Railway in 1858 - this would later be used by trains from the West Highland Line to reach the main line at Cowlairs and thus reach Queen Street High Level. The GD&HR's successors the North British Railway built a station to serve Possilpark on the line in 1887, but this was located a short distance west of the present station and was closed to passengers back in January 1917 (though goods traffic continued until 1971). Services initially ran only as far as Maryhill, with the extension to Anniesland being commissioned in 2005.
Since 18 May 2014, a limited hourly Sunday service now operates on this line (between 09:30 & 19:00).
